    So I picked up these old pieces of wood while I was out for my walk today, how would I go about sterilizing them so I can put them in my dragon and snake cages?

    Step one:
    Bath in a Vinegar/Bleach mix

    Step two:
    Rinse thoroughly with very hot water

    Step three:
    bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Let cool.

    Step four: You are all done!

    Step 1 and 2 are easy. Step 3? That's a 5 gallon gas can in the photo one of those will not fit in the oven. Any other way to do it?

    Military Grade flamethrower?

    Or just do step one and two. I add 3 to be safe, but it isn't REALLY needed.

    You can also boil a lot of water, then pour that on. That is hot enough too.

    That was a fantastic article. I loved how they didn't give you tons of information and you had to make your own conclusions. And the invisible link is so fun to find! :D

    Edit. Did not see "this" was a link. I'm going to hide in my corner of stupidity and shame now. With a dunce hat...

    400 degrees is serious overkill and dangerously close to ignition level temperatures. 200 -250 will do just fine.
